Coronavirus: Antiques Roadshow postpones Williamsburg production

Citing their prioritization of the “safety and health of its event guests, volunteers, appraisers, staff and crew,” the producers of Antiques Roadshow have decided to postpone all 2020 Production Tour events, including the Williamsburg event at Colonial Williamsburg.

The show was supposed to be in town April 28.

Further information around new dates for these events will be available in the coming days and will be communicated directly via email to both event ticket holders and local media, producers said.

Updates will also be posted on the On Tour page of the Antiques Roadshow website.

“We are optimistic that we will be back on the road soon and wish everyone well during this unsettling time, producers wrote in a statement.

Produced by WGBH Boston, Antiques Roadshow is seen by up to 8 million viewers each week. It airs locally Mondays at 8 p.m. on WHRO.
